1. Process of the Drive: The drive is the week of homecoming, October 22-26.  The drive will be from Monday to Friday.

Each division has a different process and has a faculty sponsor.  YAC teens heading every division are: UD: Rebekah D. MD: Caitlin H. LD: Valentina and Abby, PD: Judy.  Teens heading each division need to be at the division between 7:00- 7:15 a.m.  They should have cell numbers of their volunteers and remind them their responsibility to help the day before.

Senior YAC chairs are writing the letter to parents and making flyers.  YAC members, volunteering at each division were asked to make posters for their division.  Each division will have a YAC member wearing a can costume to motivate students and parents to donate.  Judy is repairing the can costumes.  To make the posters and raise their own awareness of hunger in Oklahoma, YAC members should read before making posters.  They should also visit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma site  We hope YAC members will volunteer at the Food Bank at least once before the drive.  YAC members are encouraged to volunteer at the Food Bank October 27. IT IS MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY

Each division has a different incentive to motivate students.
